Team Biden Denies There’s a Border Crisis – Most Americans Totally Disagree

After months of criticism and pressure, and an announced trip by former President Trump to the border, President Biden’s ‘immigration czar’ VP Kamala Harris rushed down to a quiet stretch of the Texas-Mexico frontier. There, while not admitting there was a border crisis, Harris blamed the surge of illegal immigration purely on ‘root causes’ in Central America, rather than on any specific policies by the Biden administration.

Meanwhile, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, says there isn’t a border crisis, and the establishment media does its utmost to provide Biden cover by not providing coverage. Unfortunately for Biden, Harris and Mayorkas, the numbers say otherwise. And so do the majority of the American people, according to the most recent polling.

According to Nolan Rappaport an executive branch immigration law expert who also served on the House Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security and Claims, illegal border crossings have reached a 20-year high. He notes in The Hill:

In the four months before Biden took office, illegal crossings averaged 70,000 a month. The number rose to 97,640 in February, the first full month of Biden’s presidency; to 169,204 in March; and to 173,686 in April; and it was 172,011 in May.

He adds that no matter of White House spin can convince the American people that there isn’t a crisis. Even worse for Team Biden, most Americans blame Biden and his administration for the crisis. They also support returning to the stricter and more effective policies implemented by President Trump.

According to Rappaport, the entire crisis is strangely self-inflicted. This is something I have stated several times, hereherehere and here.

Just one month prior to being sworn in, Biden said he wasn’t going to implement his radical immigration campaign promises right away, writes Rappaport. Apparently, Biden understood that if he ended Trump’s ‘remain in Mexico program,’ and the rest of his border security measures too soon, it could cause a surge of 2 million immigrants at our border.

Biden said it would probably take six months to prepare for implementing new border security measures. But, Rappaport notes, Biden inexplicably made most of the changes on Inauguration Day.

And America has seen the terrible result.

Rappaport’s piece in The Hill documents the vast gulf between Team Biden and the American people over immigration and border policy:

Harvard CAPS/Harris poll that was taken between June 15-17, 2021, found that 74 percent of the registered voters polled think the surge in illegal border crossings is a crisis that must be addressed immediately.

This is particularly significant because 84 percent of them underestimated the number of illegal crossings. Only 7 percent knew that there are between 150,000 and 200,000 illegal crossings a month. 

Only 36 percent think that Biden should continue his current border security polices; 64 percent think he should issue stricter policies to reduce illegal crossings.

Most voters (68 percent) think that Biden’s immigration executive orders encourage illegal immigration, and 55 percent think that his border policies are increasing the flow of drugs and crime into the United States.

More than half (55 percent) think that Biden should have left former president Donald Trump’s immigration executive orders in place.

Eighty percent (80%) consider illegal immigration to be a “serious” problem, and 43 percent responded that it is a “very serious” one.

Sixty seven (67%) percent think that illegal crossers should be turned back to Mexico.

A majority (61 percent) believe that the flood of tens of thousands of unaccompanied alien children is Biden’s fault.

These surprising poll numbers show that the border crisis Biden denies, and the media hides, is far worse politically than he realizes. As Americans continue to learn of the horrible extent of the self-created border crisis Team Biden continues to deny, expect this to become a major campaign issue in 2022, and likely in 2024 as well. ADN

If Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, says there isn’t a border crisis, can’t recognize a crisis, what in the heck is he doing as head of our national security department?

Something will be done about the border when it effects Biden and his cohorts (male and female), but by then it might be too late.

If two million illegal aliens are allowed entrance to the U.S. this year, we’ll see 4 million next year and 8 million the year after that. Estimates are that 420 million would come immediately from Mexico and the Northern Triangle if they believed they would not be hassled by law enforcement. Tens of thousands already are streaming in from Venezuela. Ask your government if they plan to open the border to EVERYONE, or just Mexico and the Northern Triangle.

*WE THE PEOPLE NEED TO DEMAND IMPEACH BIDEN AND HARRIS!*

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) we’ve had countless opportunities to fixed the nightmare of having Biden & Harris and sadly we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action?

I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

BIDEN is completely MENTALLY UNFIT FOR OFFICE! Biden is guilty of 18 U.S. Code §2381 TREASON, 18 U.S. Code §2382 SEDITION, 18 U.S. Code §2384 Seditious Conspiracy Crimes against Humanity and Subversive Activities. 

HARRIS is guilty of violating 18 US Code §2381 Treason, 18 US Code §2382 Misprision of Treason, 18US Code §2383 Rebellion or Insurrection, 18 US Code §2384 Seditious Conspiracy and 18 US CODE §2385 Advocating Overthrow of Government!

Democrats want to legalize anarchy and ban law and order!

Copy and paste this info into an E-Mail and send to friends & family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls & forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

To Biden and the Dumbascraps, there IS NO border crisis. It’s just a new supply of Dumbascrap voters.
Put armed citizens on the border and the influx will cease after a few bodies go floating down the river,.
